DDAS, 1996, Angola, excavation, PPM-2, AP
At around 11:10 the victim got a detector reading and began "prodding and excavating the ground using a bayonet" held in his left hand. A PPM-2 mine detonated. The victim was knocked backward "about" two metres by the blast and was lying partly in an uncleared area. He stood up quickly, leaving his visor which had been "blown away and broken by the blast". The victim received first aid and arrived at the field hospital at 11:20.
